Brief Summary:
With limited evidence-based information in literature about using self-adhering flowable composite in conservative class V restorations, it was found beneficial to evaluate the newly introduced material using a randomized controlled clinical trial to test the null hypothesis that moist bonding self-adhering flowable composite with and without adhesive system will have the same clinical performance as conventional flowable composite in cervical caries lesions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dental Restoration Failure Other: flowable resin composite Other: self adhering flowable Other: self adhering flowable with adhesive Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
flowable composite is considered a gold standard in class V restorations due to its resilient character the prevents its dislodgement in this area. self-adhering flowable composite would simplify the clinical steps and claims to improve the adhesion.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: flowable resin-composite

3M flowable composite is a conventional restoration to treat anterior carious cervical lesions. considered to be the gold standard of the flowable composites.

other names: ''flowable composite ''

Other: flowable resin composite
gold standard
Other Name: conventional flowable composite

Experimental: self-adhering flowable
intervention one is moist bonding self adhering flowable composite that binds to tooth without an adhesive system
Other: self adhering flowable
moist bonding self adhering flowable composite
Other Name: embrace wet bond

Experimental: self-adhering flowable with adhesive
intervention two moist bonding self adhering flowable composite that binds to tooth with the aid of adhesive system to improve the clinical performance
Other: self adhering flowable with adhesive
moist bonding self adhering flowable composite with the aid of an adhesive system.
Other Name: embrace wet bond with adhesive

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in the clinical performance using Fédération Dentaire Internationale' (FDI) World Dental Federation clinical criteria for the evaluation of the direct restoration. (FDI) criteria includes [ Time Frame: Change from the baseline at 6 months and12 months] ]

    Biological properties (Postoperative hypersensitivity & tooth vitality, Recurrence of caries, erosion & abfraction,Tooth integrity (enamel cracks or tooth fractures),Periodontal response (compared to a reference tooth),Adjacent mucosa, Oral & general health).

    Esthetic properties (Surface luster, Staining (surface &margin),Color match & translucency & Esthetic anatomical form).

    Functional properties (Fracture or material retention, Marginal integrity, Occlusal contour &wear (quantitatively & qualitatively), Proximal anatomical form(contact point &contour), Radiographic examination(when applicable) &Patient's view

    For each criteria one score will be chosen from 5 scores (excellent, good, satisfactory, unsatisfactory & poor).

    Subscales will not be combined
